The word Alchemy is derrived from Al-Kymia, Arabic for Chemistry, which in turn is derived from Kyme (Egypt), the black land. Alchemy is an esoteric art and science that had unmistakably originated in Egypt as it is etymologically evident from Kyme.

Founded in 1997 by Karim Mekhtigian, Alchemy Design Studio started out as an interior and product design office. A few years later

Hexagon Table (designed by Francesco Rota)

Inspired by Islamic patterns, the Hexagon Table represents these outlines in a fundamental geometric shape.The nature of the six-sided hexagon allows the table to be used in a modular way; numerous tables can be grouped together to form larger clusters. Suitable for different settings, the tables come in various versions combining high gloss wood or walnut veneer with color glass tops.


Infinity Kato Sofa (designed by Karim Mekhtigian)

An elegantly large sofa, the Infinity Kato is named after fellow designer Risa Kato. Its defining characteristic is the curve it possesses. Perfect for a spacious living room, the sofa spreads itself out in an enticing way. The nature of the curve creates a focal point, drawing people to its center for a cozy and intimate environment. Accompanied with a table, that shares its curvy design, the purity of its lines makes it an easy companion when selected for a space.


Dantella Chair (designed by Karim Mekhtigian)

Meaning "lace" in Arabic, the Dantella chair uses the airiness and delicacy of the fabric as an inspiration. Made out of gold metal sheets and adorned with cutouts of a decorative pattern, the chair holds a contrast within itself. While rich in pattern, a filtering effect is seen as a result of the penetration of light through the gold metal. The play of light and shadow produces a fourth dimension, which results in a chair that highlights a space without really filling it up.


Valenka Chaise Longue (designed by Francesco Rota)

Sleek lines and smooth surfaces characterize the Valenka Chaise Longue. Think 007, sophisticated objects and high-tech gadgets! The glossy exterior and rich leather upholstery exudes elegance of the most classic kind. The design also has a sexy and suave demeanor perfect for residential and office spaces.
